How to get to the hotel
What is the best way to get from noisy Moscow or St. Petersburg to Russian Lapland – the Kola Peninsula? Depending on the number of people in your company, your time and budget, you can choose one of three main options, each of which will lead you right to our hotel in Khibiny (Kirovsk, Murmansk region).
Option number 1 – By plane
This option is the most convenient and suitable for those who are accustomed to comfort and want to get to Kirovsk as quickly as possible or plan to spend only one weekend in Khibiny, therefore it is extremely limited in time.
Planes in Apatity fly daily. Price one way per person – from 5000 rubles. The flight itself will take 2 hours 10 minutes.
From Apatity to our hotel you can get in several ways:
- by taxi;
- by bus;
- by minibus.
Estimated travel time 30-40 minutes.
Option number 2 – By car
Traveling by car is the most profitable option for small companies. Powder Apart Hotel is 1700 km from the center of Moscow and 1300 km from St. Petersburg. The road to St. Petersburg is quite simple, but there are paid sections of the road.
Having taken off on the road in your car, you can admire the picturesque places of Karelia, freely explore the surroundings. You can make a stop in Petrozavodsk to take a break, take a walk around the city or stay overnight.
It should be noted that for all the picturesqueness, the road from Petrozavodsk to Kirovsk is quite complicated – it has one lane in each direction and is quite winding. In winter, ice on the road is an everyday occurrence that complicates maneuvering even more. However, if you are an experienced driver and can not imagine life without your car we do not see obstacles for this trip!
Option number 3 – By train
This method is quite suitable for large groups of tourists, romantics or those who can not tolerate air travel. A comfortable train “Arctic” will take you from the Leningrad station to the glorious city of Apatity. Estimated travel time is 36 hours. Further from Apatity to Kirovsk can be reached by transfer, pre-ordered at our hotel, by taxi, regular bus or minibus with Wi-Fi.
As follows from the above, you can get from St. Petersburg to Kirovsk in all these ways, only a little faster.
Have a nice trip! See you at Powder Apart Hotel!
